This is Your Invitation to Join the San Francisco 40 Days for Life Fall Campaign

Below is information from SF Bay Area Life Runners on the upcoming 40 Days for Life Campaign.  

40 Days for Life

Mark your calendars: 40 Days for Life starts again in 3 weeks on September 22! Our hours this fall will be from 8am to 7pmfrom Monday through Saturday (not Sunday – let’s have a day of rest!). The location is still Planned Parenthood at 1522 Bush Street. We’re working on getting security guards again with 40 Days for Life headquarters.
There has been tremendous pro life momentum recently with the Texas 6-week ban.  Let’s use this season to keep praying for the end to abortion! Here’s how you can help:
  1. Sign up for hours via our website https://www.40daysforlife.com/en/sanfrancisco.
  2. Publicize the campaign at your parish or church! Invite fellow parishioners and friends to join you. The worst they can say is no 🙂
  3. Commit to a weekly time slot. I’d like to have at least 1 hour committed every open day of the campaign.
Thank you! Look forward to seeing you in 3 weeks.

This is Your Invitation to Join the San Francisco 40 Days for Life Spring Campaign

Below is information from SF Bay Area Life Runners on the upcoming 40 Days for Life Campaign  weekdays at Planned Parenthood on Valencia Street (which is soon to close) and at their new site on Bush Street on Sundays. Information is provided below to sign up for this campaign.  

40 Days for Life SF

We are BACK! In just 2.5 short weeks, Lent will begin and that means we’ll be back on the sidewalk praying and fasting for the end to abortion. This campaign is particularly special because this will be the LAST campaign at the Valencia Street Planned Parenthood. In Fall 2020, Planned Parenthood will open a much larger Flagship NorCal facility on Bush Street that not only offers their usual “medical” services, but also has space for education & training, conferences and a “research lab”.  😱  So, we invite you to join us in praying very hard for the end to abortion in our city. Consider signing up for a regular hour or two every week. Invite newcomers – family, friends, parishioners – to join you. Promote 40 Days at your churches with this information:

Here is some additional information sent from SF Bay Area Life Runners:
  • We expect this to be the LAST 40 Days for Life campaign at the existing Planned Parenthood at 1650 Valencia Street. Planned Parenthood plans to close this location when it opens its new Flagship location at 1522 Bush Street in Fall 2020. (More info herehere and here.)
  • The new location features 8,000 sq ft of clinical space, which if I am correct, is 2x larger than the current 4,000 sq ft Valencia clinic. In addition to the clinic, the new location will have an additional 3,000-6,000 sq ft of space for education & training, conference space for gatherings and a research lab. As you can see, this new clinic greatly expands upon Planned Parenthood’s current activities in NorCal.
  • The location cost about $6M to purchase (source). In their most recent permit filed 6/20/19, Planned Parenthood reported spending an additional $7.5M in construction costs to convert this former auto body shop into a medical clinic (source: SF Planning Commission website). That’s at least $13.5M of tax payer dollars spent on this facility. 
  • Fun fact: The parcel number for this clinic is “0666/006“, which we believe is no coincidence given the evil of abortion.
  • Similar to our first SF Fall campaign in 2019, we plan to pray at both the current Planned Parenthood location from Mondays through Saturdays and the new Bush Street location on Sundays.
  • Ron Konopaski, recipient of 40 Days for Life’s Leader of the Year award in 2019 and the Walk for Life’s St. Gianna Molla Award in 2020, will be once again leading the campaign.

Please Join SF Bay Area Life Runners for a Mass to Honor Victims of Abortion, Stillbirth and Miscarriage on Sept 14th

 

National Day of Mourning

On Saturday, September 14th, 2019, Citizens for a Pro-Life Society, Priests for Life and the Pro-Life Action League will co-sponsor the 7th annual National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children, calling on pro-life Americans to honor the gravesites of our aborted brothers and sisters. Solemn prayer vigils will be conducted at these gravesites, of which there are 52 across the United States, as well as at dozens of other sites dedicated in memory of aborted children.

SF Bay Area Life Runners invites all to join them in a special Mass to remember all babies lost through abortion, miscarriage or stillbirth on Saturday, September 14th.

The Mass takes place at 8:30 am at Star of the Sea Catholic Church, 4420 Geary Blvd., San Francisco, California.  (map).  Celebrant for this Mass is Father Mathias Wambua.

For more information, please contact sfbayarealiferunners@gmail.com.
